Programmatic Pioneers Virtual Summit

The Digital Event For Leading Brands, Publishers and Agencies

November 9, 2020 | 12PM - 4PM ET

Unlock Your Programmatic Potential

Digital consumption has been completely upended in 2020. Due to both the economic and political climate, brands are looking for complete transparency with their ad placements, while also adhering to a tight budget (at least for now). Visibility has become even more of a necessity as agencies look to build trust in a field that is growing, albeit slightly stumped by future uncertainties.

At the Programmatic Pioneers Virtual Summit, attendees will hear from leading agencies, brands and publishers on how to building campaign transparency through metrics and innovation. Through easily accessible presentations, group panels, interviews and Q&A’s, you will learn the strategies you need to turn challenges into opportunities during a time of crisis.
